Production is now underway on Netflix’s Valeria.
The series is based on the popular literary saga published by Penguin Random House Editorial Group that has sold 450.000 copies in Spanish. The author, Elísabet Benavent, is a creative consultant on the project, which introduces us to Valeria, a young writer in search of inspiration.
The series stars Diana Gómez (45 revoluciones, Sé quién eres) as Valeria, joined by her three friends Lola (Silma López, Cosas de la vida), Carmen (Paula Malia, Benvinguts a la família) and Nerea (Teresa Riott, Barcelona nit d’estiu). Ibrahim Al Shami (El secreto de puente viejo) plays Adrián, Valeria’s husband, and Benjamín Alfonso (Educando a Nina) is the mysterious Victor.
Valeria is a writer in crisis, as much for her novels as for her husband and the emotional distance between them. She takes refuge in her three best friends: Carmen, Lola and Nerea, who support her during her trip. Valeria and her friends are immersed in a whirlwind of emotions about love, friendship, jealousy, infidelity, doubts, lack of love, secrets, work, worries, joys and dreams about the future.
Produced by Plano a Plano, this series is written by María López Castaño alongside Aurora Gracià, Almudena Ocaña and Fernanda Eguiarte. Valeria’s team is completed by the two directors Inma Torrente and Nely Reguera.
The series will premiere in 2020.
